More About Booger's Cloning

Check out the magic moment that came in McKinney's life, when she found five little Boogers. Here's that amazing clip that shows how excited she was that day. She was so happy to get back Booger in her life once again. The sudden shriek of joy made her cry, saying: "Yes, I know you! You know me, too!", hugging the puppies. Truly... it might have been the most amazing moment in her life... rather the best treasured wealth of McKinney's life. So just switch on your speakers and play this clip... enjoy!

According to RNL Bio, Booger's cloning was the world's first successful commercial cloning of a dog, which revealed opportunities for the company to commence its worldwide services with Booger as the company's first successful clone.

Fact behind Booger's cloning

Booger was the most lovable member of McKinney's family. McKinney was especially attached to her male Pit Bull Terrier - Booger because he saved her life when she's attacked by another large dog, leaving her with her left hand and stomach severely injured and the her leg nerves damaged. Although the doctors reconstructed her hand but she had to spend a part of her recovery on wheelchair, that had been pulled by Booger when the battery ran out. Booger used to work hard for her the day long. He opened doors for her with his teeth, helped her take off her shoes and socks, even though he wasn't a trained dog.

Booger ended his journey on April 2006; he died of cancer. After Booger's demise McKinney contacted Lee Byeong-chun, a former colleague of Hwang Woo-suk. Earlier she had asked the 'U.S.-based Genetics Savings and Clone' to clone booger . The company later wound up in late 206 due to the lack of demand for clonning, although it succeeded in producing good numbers of cloned cats, but failed to produce any dog clones successfully.

The South Korean scientists brought Booger's frozen cells to SEOUL in March 2008 and nurtured them with immense care prior to launching the formal cloning process in late May. RNL Bio charges up to $150,000 for cloning a canine, but for McKinney, it's just one-third of that amount. She is the first customer of the company and helped with publicity. The company's charging only $50000 for Booger's clonning, said company head Ra Jeong-chan.
